14 1 Andreas Steffen
15 4 Andreas Steffen
   * *Issue*:  Please choose this generic category if you are not sure whether your problem is caused by a strongSwan misconfiguration, an interoperability problem with third party VPN software or an actual bug in the strongSwan code. We are going to reclassify your report after a first analysis.

   * *Feature*:  Please choose this category for requesting new features that we might implement in future versions of the strongSwan software.

19 4 Andreas Steffen
   * *Bug*:  Please post under this category only if you are quite sure that you identified a bug in the strongSwan code, e.g. if the charon daemon crashes which it shouldn't. Of course it is helpful if you can already pinpoint the code file where you suspect the bug or in the case of a crash to provide a backtrack analysis of the core dump. User patches fixing flaws are always welcome.
